Attorney's law license suspended indefinitely

April 17, 1997

The Court of Appeals has suspended the law license of a Catonsville lawyer who ignored a judge's order to report to a detention facility after being convicted of drunken driving.

Thomas A. Garland was suspended indefinitely yesterday for not showing up at the Prince George's County D.W.I. Detention Center to serve a 33-day sentence for driving while intoxicated in 1993. He was arrested in August 1992 by a Howard County police officer who found him passed out at the wheel of his car. He had crossed the center line of a highway, had alcohol on his breath and a flat tire. The court said that Garland, who had two previous drunken-driving convictions, may reapply for his law license in six months if he agrees to undergo alcohol counseling, abstains from alcohol and pays court costs.
